Team News for Saint Lucia Kings
Faf Du Plessis takes over the captaincy from Darren Sammy, who took the team to their first finals last year and would like to continue the team’s form and clinch the championship this time. Keemo Paul and Obed McCoy’s injuries are a concern. Samit Patel will not be available for the first week of the tournament as he is busy in the T20 blast quarterfinals. Wahab Riaz would add more firepower to their pace attack, and Tim David would contribute with both the ball and the bat and is in red hot form across T20 leagues.

Pitch and Weather Conditions
The weather forecast for St. Kitts and Nevis is quite good, so we don’t expect any stoppages or DLS calculations to come into play. The pitch is generally flat, a bit slow, with a fast outfield. Out of eight completed matches, six have been won by the team chasing, which suggests that the pitch will not change much.
